this is a very nice 1979 VW camper with the conversion done by ASI for Riviera Motors (Riviera was the VW distributor that supplied VWs to Oregon and Idaho). this bus was bought new in Cour D’Alene Idaho, and lived its entire life in Idaho and eastern Washington. this camper has always been adult owned and well maintained. it has lived either in a garage or under cover for most of its life.
the body is in very good condition with entirely original paint. the left rear corner was bumped into something which pushed the bumper into the body. the damage is minor and there has been no attempt to fix it. (see photos) there is one small rust hole in the drivers side rocker panel. the bus is otherwise rust free.
the interior is in very good condition. the inserts for the seats were worn and frayed, so I had an expert interior artisan replace the bad panels with appropriately matching material.
mechanically, this bus runs very well. it has been maintained by a well respected local shop, and service records are available with it. the bus starts right up, and runs smoothly with the original stock fuel injected 2.0 type IV air cooled VW engine.
overall, this bus has always been nice, always been loved and always been maintained. I have owned and driven literally dozens of bay window buses over the last 20 years, and this is the nicest one that I have owned. this is a choice example. it is ready to go. I would not hesitate to drive this bus anywhere and have fun along the way.
this bus is available locally only. if you cannot come and look at the bus in person, then please keep looking elsewhere. this bus will be at the VW swap meet on saturday and the show on sunday in Boise at Ann Morrison park. (unless someone buys it before then) I have a clear title in my name. email with any questions or to schedule a viewing.
